Description
"There are really only two kinds of clothes in the world--those that make you look fat and those that don't. All the rest is just details," writes style maven Leah Feldon. "If you really want the answer to 'Does this make me look fat?' this is where you'll get it--whether you're an ultra-size diva on a mini-size starlet. Here, clothes that add heft are taken to task and those that diminish it are cheered. In these pages you will find out exactly what you need to know to make you look slimmer, taller, and better-proportioned in your clothes." Feldon both enlightens and delights as she takes on old clichés, details common mistakes, and shares the fine points of "Camouflage Chic." "It's about artfully disguising figure challenges while highlighting your assets and adding a dash of real style." Packed with practical, easy-to-implement tips, celebrity quotes, and illustrations, Does This Make Me Look Fat? gives you all the information you need to pull together a totally slimming wardrobe--and help your favorite man do it, too. Feldon has been at the forefront of the fashion industry for more than twenty years, as a stylist, designer, image consultant, journalist, author, and television commentator and host. She has dressed models, celebrities, and "real people" alike, and in the course of her career has learned that any figure can be improved with the right clothes. Does This Make Me Look Fat? covers such topics as: --design details that pack on pounds --the "yes" and "no" colors --slacks--pleated versus unpleated --shapewear that really works --which fabrics slim and which ones plump --outfits guaranteed to make you love your thighs again --styles that have to go--what to toss and what to keep If you follow the clever advice in this book, the next time you ask, "Does this make me look fat?" the answer will be a resounding "NO!" You'll never again waste money on things you'll never wear, or waste time trying on every-thing in your closet to find the least fattening outfit. You'll buck the trends and will know the distinction between fad and fashion. But this book is also about finding your personal style. "When your clothes are in perfect harmony with your body and your personality and the special qualities that make you unique in this world," says Feldon, "you've crossed the line from ordinary fashion to great style. My goal is to help you cross that line--looking fabulous all the way!"
